Life in a nutshell, 'cos it's better if you're nuts!

A collection of random thoughts, adventures, happenings and general goings on in the Gardner Family.
The Norman Conquests

The Norman Conquests

The Bayeux Tapestry – it’s not a tapestry and it wasn’t made in Bayeux. I’m sure there’s laws against that kind of mis-selling.

Pleudihen Fête du Blé

Pleudihen Fête du Blé

Hands up if you know what “blé” is ! We found out when we arrived at a fête that was dedicated to it.

The Dinard Donder

The Dinard Donder

A generally slow start to the day with a lack of enthusiasm all round. So we left Granny and Grandad at home and scooted off geocaching.

The Pink Granite Coast

The Pink Granite Coast

Some nice geology at the seaside. How could a holiday with kids be better ? Well, it could have been closer to home, I suppose.

Dinan

Dinan

Dinan is one of those really well presented twee little towns that France seems to be full of.

Mont St Michel

Mont St Michel

Today we decided to go to Mont St Michel, so we got up at some ungodly hour and jumped into the bus for the 45 minute drive over. It proved to be an interesting day.

Beaucoup de Rien

Beaucoup de Rien

The traditional day on the holiday where we couldn’t really be bothered. We did a bit of shopping, a bit of swimming and a bit of walking, but not a lot else.

St Malo Aquarium

St Malo Aquarium

Every good holiday in France should involve an aquarium. We’ve done the fantastic one in La Rochelle, so it was time to try the one in St Malo.
